Just a few days ago, Research in Motion and Sprint in the U.S. officially announced the BlackBerry Style 9670 - a CDMA flip phone that offers up a full QWERTY keyboard, and shortly afterwards Telus confirmed that they too, would carry the device. While no official availability or pricing has been announced, it's rumoured that they will be launching the device sometime within the first few days of November. The BlackBerry Style will launch running BlackBerry 6 OS, and features an external display for your clock and notifications, along with a standard internal display. Also featuring a 5MP camera with video capture capabilities, the Style 9670 comes with 512MB of RAM and has storage expandable up to 32GB via microSD. While the design of this new device definitely brings some back to a few years ago, it's certainly nice to see an array of options coming to Canadian mobile consumers!

Rogers is pushing out software updates to BlackBerry Curve 9300 and Bold 9700 owners that will enabled UMA (previously known as TalkSpot) functionality, enabling voice calls over Wi-Fi. While the use of the service does require a UMA specific plan, this is a great option for anybody looking to use their BlackBerry devices as both cellular and home phones. Many users will have already received the update notification, and those who haven't should be getting it very soon. Beware, the update takes about an hour, so doing it OTA (over-the-air) will mean a lack of service for that amount of time.

We've been hearing a lot about Rogers new low-cost brand Chatr, and the launch was expected for July 21st, but retailers have been notified that the launch has been delayed with a revised launch date yet to be determined. With retail outlets receiving shipments of products and fixtures within the next few days, a notification has been sent out asking that the items remain in storage areas until further notice. No clear information as to why the delay is occurring, but we do know Mobilicity wasn't very happy about the new brands intentions to compete in their market.
